The Rogue Powerpack Program
Brought to you by the Junior League of Jackson County, the Rogue Powerpack Program provides backpacks filled with nutritious, child-friendly food to selected elementary school children who are receiving free breakfast or lunch at school during the week, but are lacking adequate food at home over the weekend. Backpacks are filled every Friday to ensure they do not go hungry while away from school. Each backpack includes six meals and two snacks with additional meals added on Holiday weekends. Backpacks are returned and reused weekly.
Just $10 provides a hungry child a backpack filled with breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack for each day of the weekend. $250 will sponsor a child for a full year of the Rogue Powerpack Program.

Featured Artist — December 2016
Dixie Kinser is our featured artist this month. Stop by the tasting room to meet Dixie on Sunday, December 11th from 2 to 5 pm.
I first became enamored with art by dyeing silk. I love to see how colors bloom into wonderful patterns. Then I began another romance, this time with watercolor. Again, colors blend with beautiful results. I love experimenting with color, shapes, composition and values. In my painting I use acrylic, watercolor and collage . Abstract paintings express my vision of art and reality. This allows me to create art that is truly unique.
As well as other locations, my work has been or is shown at: Art and Soul, Ashland; Art du Jour, Medford; Gallery One, Grants Pass; Art and Fair Trade, Grants Pass; Rogue Art Gallery, Medford; WSO Spring Show 2012, Portland; Bloomsberry Books, Ashland; Art Presence, Jacksonville; National Juried Emerald Exhibit, Springfield, OR (2012);Berryman Gallery, Collier Center, Medford. My teachers include Claire Oak, Dodie Hamilton, Janet Bocast, Anne Brooke, Virginia Cobb, Judy Morris, and Lynda Hoffman Snodgrass.
I am a member of Watercolor Society of Oregon, the Abstractionists, Southern Oregon Society of Artists and Southern Oregon Art Alliance. I have also worked as a gallery director. At present, my work is primarily abstract and mixed media collage. For most of my career, I worked in education as an administrator and teacher; however I find art even more fulfilling.
Costco Medford “found” a pallet (56 cases) of 2012 Claret in their warehouse. Although we have transitioned to the 2013 vintage in the tasting room and online, this is your one and only opportunity to purchase the 2012 vintage. Pick up a bottle or two then visit the tasting room to compare both vintages.

Enjoy a complimentary wine tasting or glass of wine at the RoxyAnn Tasting Room.
“This place is a rare find for all the right reasons! Easily one of the coolest Airbnbs that I’ve stayed at. I arrived on a Friday night just in time for the live band and food truck by the tasting room. Barbara provided all the information and made sure everything was taken care of during my short stay. Make sure you get there early to taste some wine (the Malbec was my favorite). The staff are super friendly and the room is filled with witty wine quotes. Will definitely stay here again next time! PS. do NOT leave this place without getting a few bottles of wine =).”
Claret Awarded GOLD Medal from Sunset Magazine
RoxyAnn Winery 2012 Claret was an award winner at Sunset Magazine’s 5th Annual International Wine Competition!
This year, Sunset had over 3,000 entries from the United States and around the world. The judging, held at their new Cornerstone campus on April 25 and 26, was conducted by 50 of the most respected wine experts in the West, led by honorary chairs Joel Peterson, founder and winemaker, Ravenswood; and Sara Schneider, Sunset’s Wine Editor.
It’s Me (you know, the Winemaker Dude) from the winery bunker. Since the Harvest has hit it kind of feels like a bunker. Bright light BAD!
Ok, we have (as of today) brought in all of the white grapes for the 2016! Yea! We still need to ferment them out, but they can no longer go bad in the vineyard. Also in the winery is the 2016 vintage of Pinot Noir. It is fermenting along nicely, thank you, with aromas of wild strawberry, cherries, and a little black raspberry.
Tomorrow we will go out into vineyard in search of the wily grape sample. They are slow so very catchable! No, we’ll take samples from the blocks of the Vineyard that are the closest to being ripe, and through analytical data and tasting decide which will be the next fruit to come into the winery.
This year we will be making another vintage of Founders Reserve (Port), and a “real” vintage of Yumbrusco. We still have the Sherry project aging away gracefully in some barrels from last year, and we’re getting anxious to see how it will turn out. But patience is a virtue, so we will have to wait another. I thought of any other new projects to make everyone miserable this year so we will have to go with these.
So far it looks to be another excellent Vintage and one without any real smoke! Of course now that I said that we won’t be able to see across the parking lot from the smoke tomorrow morning!!
Well, Take care all, and if you come by the Winery and see a group of zombies working in the back, that’s us! But do be careful we might bite! Ha!
